well over a good evening just joined us this is out international live from moscow it said kevin and here it out t h q tonight first that egypt finds itself on the brink of chaos more than fifty people now died during a mass sit in support of the ousted president mohamed morsi the muslim brotherhood claims security forces used live rounds and tear gas against the crowd during dawn prayers of side the republican guard headquarters but the military blames the gunfire on terrorists troops at a makeshift hospital for the wounded but we warn you too that the witness accounts you're about to see here featured in this report can't be independently verified. i'm here as a field hospital inside the city and it was a scene of bloody clashes between security forces and those still supporting our president mohamed morsy in the early hours of this morning speaking to the doctors here who were treating wounded they told me the first injuries that came in why from live ammunition they believed as the bullet wounds came in from the back and through the abdomen later they said they had superficial wounds that were just skin
deep from possibly what's called him cartouche which is birdshot in addition people are being treated at the moment the suffocation off the tear gas bombs. women. all . seen by two patients upright with injuries most injuries into some back on those ones as i have seen part of sea level mission that we have. seen. maybe three point six speaking to eyewitness his they tell me they were praying and in early in the morning when they had people chanting allahu akbar which means praise to god after that they saw armed groups they couldn't identify who they were he started firing on them and then the security forces apparently also started firing on them this is are unable to verify this is just speaking to eyewitnesses they say they've been attacked with live ammunition with bad shots and gas bombs as well the gates all been from our backs even before our prayers and they started putting gas in the bullets and that was the problem that there were many children
and men women children couldn't breathe five of them died hundreds of bullets coming from the backs many people who fell to the ground and even when they fell to the ground we thought that even fighting the and this is this is where they're being treated first of all before that meets the main hospitals behind me an old woman who's in her late sixty's her husband was arrested she was in tents edition to an old man who is in his late fifty's early sixty's he has a gunshot wound to his back and it's very chaotic you went on able to verify any of these accounts but the people here who are dealing with the injured say they've been overwhelmed by the. mounds of people coming in with wounds meanwhile the greatest fear determined to stay put they say that even though that they feel they're under fire from the military they want the president to be reinstated and they will stay here until happens the army combat part say they were attacked in the republican guard headquarters is just in front of me here by the city they say the armed groups are supporters of morsi how to attack them meanwhile the military helicopters continue to circle the area and their army deployed in all the streets
surrounding this city and including armored vehicles is extremely tense here we don't know if these costs going to break out again. for a swell egypt's muslim brotherhoods no call for a revolt against the army in the wake of those deadly clashes kyra based political activist says there's no real danger of civil war in the both sides of the plague. both the leadership of the muslim brotherhood and the military leadership must take responsibility for the continuous as collations and not for reaching a resolution and also we have to understand that. even if the muslim brotherhood were trying to attack the military compound the military personnel should only deal with those who are attacking them there were forty two killed people among which women and children and three hundred twenty two casualties i do not understand why did the military opened fire randomly at people just like that that is
a very critical question that will pull the military into a crisis and this is a very serious issue because that m.f. occasions are extremely dire if this continues to be the case and more incidents like this i hope egypt does not become another area or syria. some of the political deadlock continues in egypt the country's economy is in a state of freefall two since when with morsi took office a year ago unemployment has sought well tourist revenue and for investment is strong drastically his critics say that's because he was more preoccupied with political power than actually dealing with the country's problems are his paula slip except that some of the story. those who can have long since lift trading cairo for quite a shores it's a lift this real estate broker panicked her job is finding homes for those with cash to pay up front but now she's thinking of closing up shop because business has never been this bad this sort of when you want to launch a new project in real estate everything is put on the whole it stops foreign buyers
don't want to come and invest in egypt lack of security lack of parliament lack of unstable governments so. we do nothing but just help the way economists say it's no surprise president morsi was overthrown he spent his first year in office tightening his grip on power rather than trying to rescue the country's floundering economy food prices have rocketed the country cannot pay off its debts to major oil companies and forty percent of egyptians live below the poverty line on less than three dollars a day on top of that major international investors have pulled out and sold their assets the safest decision in a repartee deteriorating environment for the foreseeable future it looks like egypt will have a government that again is unable to as to policy and as a result unable to provide investors with the confidence that they would need to begin to sing it but here in tokyo square protesters are not sawing the western giants on leaving i just my stomach i don't want them i already have made this car
leasing businessmen tells us he's fed up. before morsi was ousted and we're begging for the i.m.f. loan of about four point seven billion dollars a year now we don't want it when all is businessman collectively decided to support the egyptian economy and one day we collected over fifteen billion dollars in donations were a large economy we can rely on ourselves but the facts tell a different story for each day these demonstrations continue the egyptian economy is forced to cough up another one billion dollars. ripple effect is more in security in a way the unstable region if there's anyone benefiting from these revolutions it's people right here in tahrir square you can pick up whatever souvenirs of gimmicks you want from slats to posters to key rings and even a coin code. mag the muslim id he used to work as a sales agent but he's company was forced to shut down after mubarak was all stood
for two years this has been his office the same spot on to his square business isn't brilliant but at least he can put food on the table. i couldn't find a job but after the revolution i get here so i could make a living there i have children but then i just want to live at the end of. the egyptian flag is waved to both the pro and anti morsi potence it's about the only thing common between the two camps threatening to take egypt apart but if things don't improve soon the financial lifeblood of the country will be completely drained and whichever flagwaving group eventually prevails may find very little to celebrate policy r.t. cairo. or extensively covering the events in egypt on our website we've all you know r.t. dot com for the latest updates news pictures and analysis is all there for you.
the nicaraguan embassy in moscow has confirmed that it's now received an asylum request will supply in the run edward snowden it's now been forwarded to the country's president meantime a new bombshell from the cia ex cia employee has appeared in the german media the u.s. national security agency's allegedly been working closely with the lead in its secret surveillance activities snowden says agencies share information with no questions asked concealing their sources to protect top level politicians from any public backlash she says these revelations appear though of course then to contradict the german chancellor angela merkel she earlier slammed what she called the n.s.a.'s cold war tactics spying on friend she said isn't acceptable meanwhile i spoke to rebecca harms she's a german politician and member of the european parliament she told me she's concerned about the number of european states that could be violating privacy laws . i'm very concerned about the way how the united states of america but
especially also europeans european governments european secret services are dealing with citizens' rights with the freedom of citizens in europe so for example. the assurance that your communication to a telecommunications is protected is based on laws in germany for all citizens and obviously so this law has been broken by maybe all the secret services in europe and in the united states over all i would three comment to governments in europe and in the united states to rethink the balance of freedom of the invidious individual and the need for surveillance to achieve security for me it's clear that we have to fight against
terrorists but for me it's also clear that the fundamental rights freedom has to be protected your intelligence chief also insisted he knew nothing about the widespread surveillance carried out by the n.s.a. and libertarian activist aaron koenig says it's becoming clear the politicians have lied to their citizens and need to be held accountable them. titian's and honesty that's an oxymoron that's a contradiction in terms we all know that when it is law it's all be part of the job they lie you fall the elections and they don't keep the promise off of us i think that's not a big surprise one thing i hope is that the germans finally learn that the state is not a shop that children we have to grown up we have to take that business and swallow her own hands you know in a country was a house we have to understand we have the onus and the government is nothing more than the city management can you imagine the management that hey and if you hire this guy yourself on the onus i think you should take those thoughts out i think
they have done the very bad chop and they don't deserve to be on management any more coming up post-war molly gives up for a presidential election amid mounting worries over its fragile security situation will report then from inside the west african nation struggling to return to normality a story that spread. wealthy british science. right. out of. their private. markets why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike's cancer for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into cars

a rory broomfield is director of better off out campaign and deputy director of the freedom association all right let's get right to it for first on what had you were fighting for freedom your euro skeptic but on the other hand you have the police the chief of police department dealing with your case is saying well this is going to make crime attacking quite inefficient wouldn't it be better for the u.k. to simply remain and be part of these new regulations we look beautiful be true to . because we are concerned for the future government whether it be labor conservative or any other color will actually go into these prosecutors and expose british nationals to experiences that they do not want and would not be ok ultimately this is something that would not be in too many of these regulations if we were european union completely but there's that still up for debate for vote if and if it indeed does happen wouldn't this be very shortsighted on the part of the u.k. i don't think it would be sure so it's because the u.k.

emergency that's put in place since january that gave sweeping powers to the army during the french intervention to drive militant forces out of the country's north thousands of un peacekeepers will now be helping to maintain security during the forthcoming vote has been set for the twenty eighth of july france will be withdrawing most of its troops by the end of the year but many fear mali is not ready for an election at a time when around half a million people are still displaced and peace is still very fragile that is rare for national meds some of the people trying to get their lives back on track after being up rooted by this war. and these people from a small village to the west of mali's capital maybe mostly. but he also has the in theory only traditional duty stretching back to liberation is using nuts to help predict the future and influence the weather you know looking a little. it's people like these who helped form africa's unique and diverse cultures but it's exactly these types who would have been
a trieste of an isolation had the militants who took control of mali's north in the name of radical islam also swept aside the authorities here. have a lot bar they say they are not muslims i don't like these people and other spiritual groups they think the same way if they find us they'll kill us. french troops intervened in northern mali in january as the insurgency made a push towards the capital to months later paris proclaimed the north for their rated but for some followers of traditional islam that was already too late. twenty three year old silly man from the gal region claims al qaeda linked fighters chopped off his right hand and left food after he a father of three and a muslim who prays several times a day refused to join their ranks and. they brought the chair to a square in the center of gower they tied me up they gave me an injection and put
a bandage here brought a knife like this and cut it. however some people from solomon's village claim has a speech which the radicals punish him for one to sharia law they imposed or do so we're against their opinion that they don't consider the muslim they have their own interests and there was that travelling too was the north we met no one who sympathizes with the insurgents and their rigid religious themes and that's even goes for the next generation you want to fight against and why are they bad bad all of them lot of lalan yes they are bad bad for our country. but when those ringers of shari'a law to call to the north a significant number of mali is either join them or help them. some suggest by their wallets militants have capitalized on widespread poverty while others have been joining by they slogans it is now many people who join the radicals understood
they were mistaken and they've joined the side of the mali an army to fight against those people who are going to be i you guys are afraid that these people will come back. you know they will not come back. ok on why they will never come back here. because mali and france now years. that's france is drawing much of its military and the very people paris claims to have driven out still appeared to be very much around. the same groups that to mali's north claimed responsibility for a terror attack on a french run uranium facility in neighboring new jam while the very factories that allowed to the rise in the north proved to be a feeling of injustice and general frustration are still very much evident. in critical period of the campaign. is not
a legal matter it makes me wish that. respected i don't. get is there. is nothing that is the missing link to paint the wreckage now from mali. three or more main news headlines tonight in southeast india a two story building collapses killed twelve people eighteen are injured more believed to be trapped under the rubble were in the city like hotel local authorities recently wounded several buildings in the area were unsafe but the hotel itself has been given the all clear. protesters have gathered once again in libya's capital tripoli the voicing anger against the growing influence of mostly groups paid by the state they want the government to disband militias and create a legitimate army and police force that comes after more deadly clashes last week between two groups in the south of baghdad. u.s.

a choice the decision is down to independent body he decide how pay should be set and it says chairman has criticised the party leaders for voicing their opposition prior to it and peace at their own pay and well we all know how class ended up as members of parliament. you know. them different independent body paid work. as well that m.p.'s salaries are already now far more than double the average so what do the british public have to say about it will their responses when quite what you might think think anyone should be you know should be should be paid for. yes if it stops are kind of things where they feel. anything. more from a job should be. you know love you know extracurricular activities were some make
a lot of wonderful things in the current climate. that you know as well is that if you're. going on let's find more people using food banks. in british peacetime history is. quite understandably in their mention of the pay rise the politician has provoked anger and confusion amongst many in the public but in the wake of members expenses scandals this pay rise could also be linked to an end to outside earnings the m.p.'s which many say will be. it's for real with a poem and that's that's the date hot stuff even in the coming days certainly be something to reflect on. and. on you seem continues to be a service twenty four seven on a website called meantime on but with more live news from moscow just over half an hour between then capers is here with the latest sports what i.
remember how all the sudden avent card protest group became world famous and and were completely forgotten by the next month yeah i'm talking about the feminist punk rock group pussy riot that performed a vulgar anti prayer and one of moscow's most famous orthodox cathedrals one possible reason for their explosive popularity in the media's eyes was revealed recently by german actress on a book the actress claims a german t.v. channels e.d.f. paid her a large undisclosed amount of money to come out on behalf of the activists banned show said on a t.v. discussion that she doesn't even remember what she said except for wishing them well with dealing with their incarceration it would be very odd for an actress to
just make up a bribery scandal especially one she was complicit in but it makes you wonder just how many other people's e.d.f. may have been given a little extra motivation to cry travesty overall i think that most important of what said her public revelation is that she said that you know what it's a bit dumb when actors talk about politics and i couldn't agree with her more but that's just my opinion. and i welcome. the r.t. sports show deeds and words and news from russia and across the globe in a sport packed twenty six minutes with me kate partridge and here's just a taster. let the games begin the twenty seventh university age the world student games gets underway in heralding the start of russia's biggest sporting event since the nine hundred eighty olympics. while winning warmup spots i'd be
